Coffee morning volunteers in Sewards End have raised £1,200 for life-changing support for people with cancer.
Sophie Thomas organised a Macmillan Coffee Morning in Sewards End Village Hall on Saturday, September 25.
Her efforts raised £1,200 for Macmillan with help from her husband, children and Tesco staff in Saffron Walden who supplied cakes and refreshments.
She said: "I would like to thank everyone who supported the event and to Tesco for supplying the hot drinks."
Susie Diggons, one of the supermarket's community champions, helped to promote the event.
